What to see?

Info centre Crkvine

Info centre is located in the northwestern part of the Park, in the Ornithological Reserve, at the entrance to the wooden educational path “Birds of Vransko Lake”. Here you can buy a basic ticket to the Park, a cycling and excursion ticket, and rent binoculars to observe the rich birdlife while walking along the wooden path in the reserve. There is also a souvenir shop within the info centre. There are informants at your disposal from whom you can get more information about the Nature Park itself and visitor programs.

Walking along the 600 m long wooden path, you will get to know some of the birds that feed, nest, hide or rest in the thick reeds of the Ornithological Reserve, and among them you may even spot the stars of Vransko Lake – Purple Heron and Pygmy Cormorant. More than 260 different bird species have been recorded on Vransko Lake, and the birdwatching tower at the end of the wooden path will take you deeper into this bird paradise. After a pleasant walk, our informants will be happy to guide you to other attractions in the Park. Info centre Crkvine is open from April to the end of October. A chemical toilet and free parking are available to visitors during the working season.

Educational path next to the info centre Crkvine is suitable for children and wheelchairs.

Dogs are allowed to walk on the trail, but they must be on a leash at all times.

Additional offer at the info centre Crkvine:

  • adventure park,
  • rental of binoculars and birdwatching manuals,
  • rent of MTB bikes,
  • sale of fishing licenses.

In the immediate vicinity of the info centre Crkvine is the Ornithology Station, where since 2004 the summer ringing camp has been continuously held with an emphasis on education. The camp is held an average of one hundred days a year, from July/August to September/October, and covers the period of autumn bird migrations. For the duration of the camp, the last 50 m of the wooden educational path is closed to visitors so that the birds are not disturbed further and the movement does not affect the results of the scientific ringing.

NOTE: By purchasing a basic ticket, visitors have access to the entire Nature Park Vransko Lake, where there are three info centres: Kamenjak, Prosika and Crkvine, six educational trails, among which we highlight – Educational trail “Birds of Vransko Lake” at Crkvine, Educational trail “Viewpoint Kamenjak” at Kamenjak and Educational trail “Vransko Lake Fish” at Prosika. The purchased ticket is valid for one day to visit all locations in the Park.

Cash and card payments are possible at info centres!
